New festival campsite

We have arranged with a local land owner to organise trial run of a campsite to support the festival this year. There will be a limited number of tents and campervan spaces made available.

Campsite passes can be purchased via our ticketing platform, and are only valid for main stage wristband holders. There will be onsite toilets and waste disposal. A code of conduct will cover the usage of the campsite.

If this trial run proves successful we will look to expand and improve the campsite services available in the future.

Graduate of Bird Collegeuk in London, and finalist in Sky’ 1s “Got to Dance”, Emily will host a 1 hour dance workshop session for kids aged 6-12 during our festival Saturday starting at 11.30am.

This is your chance to connect with our local World, British and European champion for both freestyle and slow dance, who is keen to give back and inspire the next generation.

This competition accepts any performance of music, poetry or stories, which celebrate the local area of Killin and Perthshire, and is inspired by Killin’s heritage in traditional Scottish music, in particular, Stewart’s ‘The Killin Collection’.

Col Charles Stewart (1823-1894) was a prominent figure in Killin and Perthshire, and helped to preserve and promote local history, folklore and music. Among his many achievements Stewart was Chief of the Perth Gaelic Society, Director of the Killin Railway, head of Killin Gaelic Choir and was a respected historian and translator of old manuscripts. Born in Glen Lyon, Stewart spent the greater part of his life in Killin at Tigh’n Duin. His legacy ‘The Killin Collection’ comprises songs and tunes of the local area from the 18th century.

The competition takes on the morning of Sunday 18 June 2023, at our free to access community stage.

Wristbands must not be removed and given to any other person. Any broken wristbands will be denied entry by security, and anyone with a broken wristband within the event may be ejected.
